INTRODUCTION 



The births, marriages and deaths occurring in Topsfield be- 
fore the year 1850 were published by the Topsfield Historical 
Society in 1903, and beginning with the year 1900 the vital 
records for that year and all succeeding years have been in- 
cluded in the volumes of Historical Collections published annu- 
ally by the Society. The present volume fills the intervening 
space. It will be noticed that the entries contain more detailed 
information than is to be found in the earlier records. Noth- 
ing of importance was omitted at the time Volume I was pub- 
lished, but during the period covered by the present volume 
the blank books of record supplied by the Commonwealth to 
the town clerk, provided for the inclusion of additional infor- 
mation : — the maiden names of mothers, the place of birth of 
the parents, occupations, diseases, etc., etc. Intentions of mar- 
riage are not here included, nor has it been deemed necessary 
to canvas for possible additional information on grave stone 
inscriptions or private records. Parentheses are used only 
when they occur in the original record, and usually enclose 
the maiden name of a wife. The spelling of names follows 
that found in the original record,
